Great, more parts that I need to get for my Evo! Anyone know what the difference in handling is between this, and the LW setup?

yep very little slop with this system. I have seen some impressive lap times at Tamiya America using this system in both 19t and Mod...

Yes, they are a Tamiya America production item. The prototype arms were seen on his EvoIV and recently he has been testing them on a 415.

What brand/typ do you use? I think no Tamiya bearings.

It's a pretty snug fit. If anything, you'll only need a 0.1mm shim. The production arms and hub carriers have no slop. If you find that they bind just a hair, take a pass or two at it with fine grit sandpaper...that's it. Nice tolerances. The prototypes had shims everywhere hehe.

Rod do you remember when David Jun used the adapters for his 1150 bearings to convert them to 850 bearings? He really liked the saller bearings cause it made for a bunch less unsprung weight. But that was the challenge, blowing them up all the time.
